Hi Gerald,

If you say you don't have problems with the German umlauts *and* if you also
have that line stating dir-listing.encoding = "utf-8"... I guess this
answers my problem! That's the only goddamn extra "feature" I need from
a web server, to allow me to specify utf-8 as the encoding used in the
directory listings :-)

Thanks again for the hint, I'll keep on trying a little bit more with apache
(including asking on their mailing lists what's wrong) and if that won't
help... I might as well try lighttpd (after all... the whole OSS concept
*is* about alternatives, actually).

Thank you,
